You will. Fats Oils Grease, milk falls in the fats category.

I'm surprised that you were even able to open you store if they are now just asking you if you have grease trap. Your guidelines state that if its a new or renovation that your required to have one. If they require it you'll most likely have to follow the Federal guidelines. Smallest tank size is about 750 gallons. But the formula to figure how much you use is what decides how big of a tank you will be required to install. You'll never fill that in 100 years but that is what the Feds want.

Your guidelines can be found here http://www.co.st-johns.fl.us/BCC/Utilit ... d_2008.pdf.

If they make you install one you might be able to file a grievance that states it would cause an extreme hardship on your business and they will allow you to drastically down size the tank to something more manageable say 150 to 300 gallon setup.

On another interesting note, the Prime One Outlet mall has been negotiating to get us back in the same spot they kicked us out of. Aint that a b@#$h
